As the beloved Drexell and Honeybee’s, a top-notch soul-food restaurant with a donation-only policy, was hit especially hard during the pandemic, one musician is on a mission to keep the local institution alive by offering $1 downloads of his new song that serves as a tribute to the spirit, charity and togetherness the restaurant has shown the community over the years.

The song ‘I Was Hungry (and You Fed Me)’ by Maxamiliano Nealon is a moving homage to the restaurant that’s served as a safe haven for those in need of a hot meal and has touched many lives over the past years. Owners Lisa and Freddie Thomas-McMillan have enthusiastically embraced the song and as passionate music lovers themselves; they see it as a unique opportunity to raise awareness of their mission. The song can be purchased for $1 and downloaded here:

“With all of our donations based on anonymity and the pandemic forcing us to offer only take-out meals, we’ve had to unfortunately stop accepting contributions as we don’t want to take the chance of someone not getting a meal because they feel embarrassed about what they can or can’t provide in these unprecedented times,” said Lisa McMillan, co-owner of Drexell & Honeybee’s. “Feeding the needy has always been a higher calling for us and with this initiative, we’re hoping we can rally additional support from the community and continue delivering hot meals to those who need it most for many years to come.”
